School Overview

Academy of Computer Science and Engineering (Formerly Civic Leadership High School) inspires tomorrow’s leaders through academic excellence, service, and duty. A culture of civic engagement and service is the school’s core emphasis, requiring students to complete a minimum of 50 community service hours each year. These hands-on experiences provide students the opportunity to make a positive impact in their community and build their skillset to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. Students engage in specialized coursework and skills-based activities focused in Public Service, Environmental Science & Community Engagement; Fire Science & Emergency Medicine; Law, Government, and Homeland Security; and Law Enforcement. The rigorous, college-ready curriculum prepares students to attend the college of their choice, while specific training and education prepares students to meet the unique requirements of these rewarding professions.
